Let it Snow with Susie!

Hello and welcome! It's Susie hosting the blog today and I am sharing a layout featuring the Winter Bliss Collection.

I started by trimming  the background paper to an 11.5" square and then centered it on black card stock.  You can see I matted each of the layers with black card stock before topping it all off with a 6"x6" laser cut overlay from Want2Scrap.


One of my favorite things about the overlay is that it comes with a built in title!  It also comes with a white background page that gave me a border for my picture.


I embellished the laser cut snowflakes with Want2Scrap Iridescent Rhinestones.  The fact that they are self adhesive makes them so easy to use!


Want2Scrap Black Enamel Dots were perfect for accenting this list of priorities!


I just love the way patterns and papers in this collection work together.

Quick Quotes Supplies:
Winter Bliss Papers:  103, 104 coming soon!

Want2Scrap Supplies:

Other Supplies:  
Black card stock
7 Gypsies stickers
Tim Holtz Idea-ology stickers

Camera Mini Album with Gabriela

Hi everyone, Gabriela here today with a mini album from Want2Scrap featuring a beautiful new collection from Quick Quotes called Winter Bliss.

First, these papers are gorgeous and fun. The colors are great for a winter theme, but I'm sure you will find reasons to use them all year long.


This mini album is shaped like a camera, so I had some fun turning the cover into a shaker window that looks like a real camera, check out the video below.


I also used my Xyron Creative Station to make the adhering the paper easier and neater, this was a fun album to make and I hope it gives you some ideas for a mini of your own.

Off the Page with Alicia!

Good morning Quick Quotes' readers, Alicia here today with an altered project for you today. I must admit this project has been in the works for some time. But when I received the new Quick Quotes Winter Bliss collection, I was finally able to accomplish the project I envisioned.

My nephew's room has arrow accents and it blue and gray. The new Winter Bliss blue arrow paper was just perfect to cover the chipboard letter. I distressed it with Coal Miner PowderPuff Chalking Ink and some stencils including the Want2Scrap Brick stencil. 

 I also used some texture paste with a stencil or two to give the project some dimension. I also added plenty of arrows, some metal and some cut with templates. I also cut some other shapes out of the Winter Bliss papers and added various embellishments.



I also created a chipboard frame on the letter.  I die cut the frame with nesting dies, chalked it up with Coal Miner PowderPuff Chalking Ink, then attached the frame to a chipboard backing.  

Once I cut the picture down to fit, I measured and wrote the dimensions inside the frame so my sister in law can replace the photo as she sees likes.

Quick Quotes and Want2Scrap Inspiration Week - Day 6!

Hello and happy weekend to all of you! It's Rhonda here today to share my project featuring Quick Quotes and Want2Scrap products.

During this past week our Design Team has been sharing their beautiful creations with Quick Quotes and Want2Scrap. Here is what I created:

 
The title here is a Chipboard Quote from Want2Scrap which I base coated with white acrylic paint, then added color using my PowderPuff Chalk Inks. To get my crisp lines, I used bits of washi tape to mask.
 
 
As you can see, I also base coated my Tag Mini Album with white acrylic paint as well, then cut my layers from the pretty Winter Bliss Papers. I trimmed them 1/8 an inch smaller than my traced shape, then inked with some PowderPuff Chalk Ink for definition.
 
A bit of stamping randomly with Midnight Confessions and some of my favorite script and texture stamps added some interest.
 
 
More stamping, I also really enjoyed the idea of making this an inspirational album, so I've used some stickers here from my stash.
 
 
Some washi tape, doily that I inked lightly and sentiments here...
 
 
I used my Clouds Stencil for this page along with crackle embossing paste, a bit of ink splatters and stamping here.
 
 
I mixed up a few elements here and included some washi and rub-ons from my stash.
 
 
 I loved creating this project, it came together so easily with all of the wonderful products from Quick Quotes and Want2Scrap!

Quick Quotes and Want2Scrap Inspiration Week - Day 5!

Hello crafty friends, Martha Lucia here to share with you a card that I created to close the inspirational week between Quick Quotes and Want2Scrap. 

During this week all my friends from the Design Team showed us their beautiful creations with the Quick Quotes products and the amazing embellishments of Want2Scrap. Take a look at my card:

ALL THE PAPERS IN ONE CARD 

As you noticed I almost used the entire collection of designs on this card because I really liked them all and I couldn't decide which paper I wanted to use for my card, so I decided to use as many as possible. This is a fun design that uses folded decorated paper to reveal both sides. I used 4 different designs of Winter Bliss, the 100, 101, 102, 103, 104 that will be available in the Quick Quotes Store very soon.
  1. Cut four pieces of 2"x2-5/8" of each design.
  2. Fold corners at 1-1/4". Two pieces fold the left corner and 2 pieces fold the right corner.
  3. Adhere the pieces to the folded card base. The size of the base is 4-1/4"x11" with score in 5-1/2". If you want you can use the Xyron label sticker maker to paste the pieces.
  4. Wrap Melon Mambo solid baker's twine around of the card front and tie in a bow.
  5. Stamp the sentiment over the pink side of a piece of Winter Bliss 102 using PowderPuff Navy Chalk Ink.
  6. Cut this piece using the cross stitched square die cut from Gina Marie Designs and paste on the center of the design using dimensionals.
  7. Decorate the corners of the rectangles using 8mm Turquoise Enamel Dots from Want2Scrap.
ALL THE PAPERS IN ONE CARD 

Easy...right?!

Quick Quotes and Want2Scrap Inspiration Week - Day 4!

Greetings and welcome to the blog today! We have double the inspiration for you with Susie and Connie sharing projects with you featuring Quick Quotes and Want2Scrap products.

*****

Hello and welcome! Susie here today with a project featuring the Honeycomb Collection from Quick Quotes and Chipboard Embellishments from Want2Scrap.

I love our family tradition of fall pictures at the pumpkin patch and the colors in the Honeycomb Collection are perfect for scrapping the memories! I used the orange side of Honeycomb 102 as the base of this gratitude themed layout. I trimmed down Honeycomb 105 to an 11.5" square, distressing and inking the edges before centering it on the page. I used some burlap and striped papers to create photo mats for my pictures and added a tag for hidden journaling.



This month the Design Team got the chance to add some wonderful products from Want2Scrap to our projects and I love the chipboard quotes!  They are so easy to alter and they make perfect page titles! I received a chipboard quote that reads "The Little Things".

I decided to add color to the word "little" using PowderPuff Chalking Ink.  I used washi tape to mask off the other words before painting it with gesso. If you want to end up with a strong, true color you need to start with a white base.


After it dried, I inked with Sunset PowderPuff Chalking Ink. I removed the washi tape and used clear embossing ink and embossing powder on the whole chipboard title. I love the two-toned look!


I used some other Chipboard Embellishments from Want2Scrap on the layout.  Here you can see how much darker and richer the color becomes when you use clear embossing powder on top of the plain chipboard.


The Quick Quotes Challenge this month is "Tear It Up" so you can see several torn pieces of paper on the layout.  I used Warm Sand PowderPuff Chalking Ink on the edges before I layered them onto the page.


Quick Quotes Products:
Honeycomb 101, 102, 104 and 105
PowderPuff Chalking Inks -  Warm Sand, Sunset and Navy
Want2Scrap Products:
Chipboard Quotation - The Little Things
Chipboard Embellishments - Style A, Pack of 4
Other supplies: tag, embossing ink, clear embossing powder, gesso, decorative tape

Thanks for stopping by and I hope youfind some time to play today!
